We are delighted that Dr Kate Chhatwal, Trustee of STEP Academy Trust and CEO of Challenge Partners, has been awarded an OBE in the New Year’s Honours List 2020 for services to education.
A valued member of the Board, she has volunteered as a STEP Trustee and has been involved in establishing and chairing the Education Committee for four years.
Upon hearing the news, Dr Chhatwal said: “In over four years with STEP, I have been inspired by the hard work and commitment of my fellow trustees, leaders and staff across the Trust to our mission of working together to provide an excellent education for the children and communities we serve. I am proud to have had a role in STEP’s success, and have benefitted personally and professionally from what I have learned along the way. Volunteering as a trustee or governor is a great opportunity and I would encourage everyone to consider it.”
